Say hello to a baby aardvark – better make that 'awww'-rdvark!

On April 10, this male aardvark was born at Busch Gardens in Tampa. This is a rare occurrence in North American zoos, as less than 12 aardvarks are born every year.

Luckily, Busch Gardens has a male and female aardvark, and last month, they welcomed a third. The cub, who already knows how to take big gulps of his milk, will greet his public at Jambo Junction and will someday become an educational Animal Ambassador.

Here's lookin' at you, kid!
